The book of my father’s side of the family history was written by Major Joel Levin, and detailed the history of the Levins from one orphan in Ukraine in the late 1800s to 1999. Joel goes to great lengths to describe the WWII service of my extended family, but his only words for himself are:
“I personally served in Viet Nam in 1970 and 1971 and saw combat at Khe Sanh, Phan Thiet and also outside Cam Ranh Bay at Bac Cum Mountain. I received the Viet Nam service ribbon and the Bronze Star.”
That is all he had to say about that.
